Kindness

Hosted by the Mental Health Foundation, Mental Health Awareness Week started yesterday and this year’s theme is kindness.  You can access the website for more information here:

https://www.mentalhealth.org.uk/campaigns/mental-health-awareness-week

 

Today, I would like you to think about any worries that you may have.  We can all feel down or feel worried about something, especially during these unsettling and challenging times.  It is important to talk to someone you trust about these worries or problems and it can also help to write them down, so I have uploaded a selection of sheets that may help you to do that.  Sharing any worries you have should help you feel a lot better.  

P.E.

Are you looking for something different to do?  Why not take a look at the ‘Rivers and Mountains Workout’ sheets for some ideas to get you moving.

Alternatively, you could start your day by joining Joe Wicks for his daily live P.E. session which can be accessed here: https://www.youtube.com/user/thebodycoach1

 

Quick Maths

Today’s challenge: Addition 5 Minute Frenzy

Choose one of the sheets below, (either numbers to 10 or 2-digit numbers to 50) use a clock or timer set to 5 minutes and see how many calculations you can answer correctly in that time. 

I will set this challenge again on Thursday to see if you can beat your score! 

Maths

We are going to continue using the BBC Bitesize website.  This week’s work will help reinforce the White Rose Maths fractions work from a few weeks ago.  Have a go at one of these Maths lessons using the links below: 

 

Y3 = Identifying the fraction shaded

Y4 = Simplifying fractions

Reading

Remember to set aside some time for independent reading.  If you are looking for some ideas for your next read, try looking through the recommended reads for Year 3 and Year 4, (see our ‘Useful Links’ section) have a look at the latest edition of First News (use the link under the ‘Children’ tab on the homepage) or try reading one of the Accelerated Reader articles which you can then complete a quiz on (see parents’ guide below).     

 

If you have a Lexia or Nessy login, don't forget to keep up with your usage.  Try to spread it out throughout the week in short blocks (i.e. no more than 20 mins at a time).

 

Spelling

Please log on to Spelling Shed  and complete the online activity set for you this week.

 

English

In today’s lesson, the stimulus is a shape poem that is all about a particular action – rolling down a hill! 

Please remember that you don’t have to complete all of the activities suggested within each of these Hamilton Trust plans.  Reading and talking about the poems is the most important task.
